You Are A Winner

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” —1 John 5:4, NKJV


In competitive sports, there are always ‘winners’ and ‘losers,’ meaning there will always be a team or person who comes away with the victory.

Thinking about life this way, one could conclude that the same holds.

But guess what? Those who are in Christ will always find themselves on the winning side because the world and its systems will continuously fall short when it comes to all things concerning God.

Yes, the world will have its ‘star players,’ but God’s team consists of all-stars,’ people who believe in their coach, the team’s vision, and themselves. These players understand that there’s no “I” in the word ‘team,” but the group, as a whole, works together to accomplish one common goal—a Win.

The same power that escorted Jesus out of the grave is the same power that resides inside of us. How do we know? Jesus said it would be so.

He said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you;” (Acts 1:8a)—power to witness and power to win. Paul confirms this statement by saying, “…no matter what comes, we will always taste victory through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37, The Voice).

Life hits hard at times, so hard that it can feel defeating. But if we trust in God’s word, we can find affirmation and encouragement written in the lines.

Lines that hold such truths as:

Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:37, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

1 Corinthians 15:57, “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

And the pronouncements go on and on.

I encourage you today to never let tests, trials, or tribulations make you feel that you are less than what God created you to be. You are fearfully and wonderfully created in the image of God.

You bear the image of the Victorious One; therefore, winning is in your DNA.
